CMS's new Direct Contracting Model is a voluntary payment model that begins on April 1, 2021. The anticipated model builds upon learnings from the Next Generation Accountable Care Organization (ACO) Model, offers participants increased risk options and is an integral component of CMS’s strategy to redesign primary care as a platform to drive reductions in costs. In addition, the high-risk model is an opportunity for participants to drive consistent revenue, improve patient outcomes, and lower global utilization and costs.
